Recycled Christmas


Its time again for another Christmas Card Club challenge and this fortnight it was set by Hazel.  She asked for us to use up some of the crafty freebies and/or recycle something on our card.  
I have to admit I wasn't looking forward to this as I thought Id struggle but in fact once I got the idea in my head I was flying!

With the box from a hair dye I die cut the sentiment and I stamped on the reverse of the backing card that came with a free set of stamps on a craft mag.

I also used the free stamps and papers from another free set for this card so Im feeling pretty smug with my recycling/freebie effort!!

Thanks Hazel for a great challenge!  Our new challenge is being set by Clare so watch out for another xmas card in two weeks, if not before!

Id like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Charisma Cardz - Cutesy

Hope you're all having a super weekend!

Well done with that challenge! Super Card... I bought this mag and love the stamps.

Thanks for the comment on my blog Keryn x My 'gems' woohoo! Have been collected over the years lol. Some from charity shops and boot fairs .... old brooches and broken necklaces go for a few pence and sometimes I get given them free 'cos no one else wants them! I also bought a huge tub from C&C, years ago, when Alan and Barry were on the channel! Lol

Some glass gems called 'Zooms' I found on the internet but I can't remember where ..... sorry ! Hope this lot helps and I will be looking for you at the next boot fair! lol :) E xx
